I have had the privilege of living in Northern Ontario and being part of this wonderful community Temiskaming Shores for 11 years now. Every year at this time I can’t help but feel a sense of loss as I look at all the name’s of loved ones lost to cancer that line our streets. Cancer touches all of us in some way, it is far reaching and affects any age. I know that they are making progress in Cancer research but a cure still evades us. I recently read on the Biker’s Reunion webpage that they have raised a million dollars to help fight Cancer. Wow! Look what can happen when people come together with an idea to create change and a community embraces it. As we get ready for the last Bikers Reunion, I have to express my gratitude to all of the volunteers for their dedication and commitment to this cause. I can’t imagine the hours it takes to put something like Biker’s on. The depth of caring and support that I see in this community humbles me. How fitting that we celebrate Canada Day on the same weekend. After all isn’t that what it means to be Canadian, supporting and caring for each other!
Happy Canada Day and have a great long weekend:)
